Delicious, authentic and great value. A wonderful local gem for seafood and more. Professional service and really fun
They never disappoint. Food is fresh, delicious and a great value for the price. Service is excellent and the Sangria is too!
I don’t know what went wrong, but the first time I ate here the food was awesome. This time it wasn’t so goo, I even got sick from it. I hope they get better.
Always a great meal and service... also thee best sangria I’ve ever had!
Awesome experience all around.
Nice atmosphere. Paella over salted and seafood not so tasty. Would try another dish if I go back. Convenient parking behind building.
Food is delicious. Server forgot my husbands meal, by the time he received it, I was finished. Servers could have been more accommodating.
This restaurant is always outstanding. I would highly recommend it.
Excellent food, reasonable prices, great wait staff. We've been going there for years.
The staff were all amazing including bartenders, hosts and servers. The food was delicious, served quickly and portions were generous. We had appetizers and entrees but didn’t try the desserts. I liked how they had several rooms with tables, it felt more like a traditional old style restaurant with modern cuisine.
Had a delicious seafood rice dish and my husband had chicken with port wine. We both enjoyed our meals and the white sangria was wonderful too. Service was friendly and attentive. This was our first time to the restaurant and it was a last minute decision. We were happy to get a table. We'll be back.
The food was wonderful. We enjoyed celebrating my husband's special day! Thank you all! We highly recommend !
My fiancé had a Dr appt @ 3 and it went till 5pm😱that was the time for our reservation! The hostess sat our friends who got to the resteraunt promptly. They enjoyed their appie and paella & Mariscada thoroughly as always(we’ve been coming there mostly together for years) We ended up fighting Traffic but were welcomed in and we found our friends and ordered our appie (Garlic Shrimp) which was wonderfully flavorful! Our meals the chicken franchaise and steak casserolla? Which followed our app and both meals were great! My only criticism would be that our friends were looking for coffee & dessert (the flan) and we couldn’t find our waiter or server to flag down! But we will definitely be back again and will ALL have dinner & dessert together:)
Food was excellent. We love going there
This was our first time and it was a solid first experience....my wife had the fish special and it looked really great, she said the flavor and season was spot on. I had ordered a steak med rare...and it was cooked to be medium which was slightly disappointed but not dramatic enough to send it back....lacked some seasoning. We will sure try it again.
Great place love the decor, only issues was the price of my meal versus what was given for the price seem over valued. Food was great.
Food and service were excellent, had a reservation and took us right on time. Parking is easy in their lot or adjacent availabilities
The food here is excellent. I have ordered many dishes and every one of them was delicious. Service is great and ambiance is beautiful. The acoustics need working on because it can get loud.
Good food with ample portions at a very reasonable price.
Once the dining room filled up, it was so loud we could not talk at a table of 4.
Consistently excellent food and great service. We come here often and are never disappointed.
The chicken francese is excellent!!! Salads are great along with the bread.
Highly recommend a visit to this restaurant in a charming old neighborhood in South River. Clearly a local favorite with wonderful service, updated and fresh interior, and great energy. The food was very good and with generous portions, a great value. Felt like we were eating at the family table of a wonderful Portuguese home cook.
The food is consistently good. Totally enjoyed the meal
Food is excellent. I had seafood and it was seasoned perfectly. Price was right since I had enough to take home for another meal. We've been coming here for years and will continue. Service is top notch.
Good food, good atmosphere. Beware - the paella for 2 can feed 4 👍🏻
The ambience & service was pretty nice. The portions were large but the food was quite bland. Honestly the best part of our dinner was the garlic butter that came with the complimentary bread & the dessert - we had flan.
Always the best food and service. Our server, Sam, was a true gentleman.
All dishes were delicious. We had grilled shrimp and chicken in garlic sauce. Our friend had the ribs. The waiter was very accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent restaurant! Huge portions and delicious food for the price. The service was wonderful as well - my parents are going to Portugal in the fall and one of the waiters gave them a ton of recommendations for their trip.
Portuguese Fisherman is an excellent restaurant. Great food and the Front Desk young lady was great
I got very sick from the food
Food was delicious!
One word- delicious. The ambiance was great! I will go back again!
The food as always was in point. The server was attentive and informative. However we felt uncomfortable sitting against a brick wall and asked to move to another table. They said the other tables were taken and we couldn’t be moved. I understand we were only two people but our comfort level wasn’t there and for the money we spend and being a frequent customer I thought they should be able to grant our request.
Consistently good food and service. It's nice to know that the dining experience will always be top notch.
My meal came out made incorrectly due to difficulty in the waiter understanding my needs. They corrected part of the issue yet did not correct it all. At that point I just said forget it. The rest of my party's meals were great. Another waiter with whom had waited on me previously came over and apologized and offered a free dessert for the inconvenience. Make sure your waiter understands English so you get your order correct.
As usual, the food was delicious, and made to order. This is one of our favorite places, and it’s always up to par
It's been better on other visits. Bread was cold, and calamari appetizer was gummy/chewy. Table next to us was extremely loud and close.
Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. Drinks were large. Sangria was awesome. Garlic shrimp could have been a little tastier with larger shrimp. A little noisy. Great value. Can’t wait to go back.
